    What beautiful weather we have been having for the time of year. I know some of my co-writers want snow, but by the time they reach my age they may change their minds. For when the roads are slick and the driving is treacherous, we feel we really shouldn’t be out there on the roads, especially by ourselves. Besides all the expense it costs the county to treat the roads to keep them less dangerous to drive on.

    Cory and I finally decided on a green Christmas tree as our first tree. We decorated it with special ornaments with our families names on them. Daddy and sis finally decorated the outside of their home last weekend. As usual there is the inflatable snowman. Are they wishing for snow? A little snow on Christmas would be nice.
